Kyrgyzstan’s Ministry Of Health, World Bank Aim To Improve Country’s Maternal Health

The Guardian: Kyrgyzstan strives to make inroads on poor maternal health record
“…Kyrgyzstan has the highest maternal mortality rates among Eastern European and Central Asian countries, and is way off track to meet the 2015 deadline for the Millennium Development Goal (MDG) on maternal mortality, which aimed to reduce by three-quarters the number of women dying as a result of childbirth. … But a three-year, $11m program between the World Bank and the ministry of health, launched last year, aims to address the disparities and accelerate progress on cutting maternal deaths…” (Ford, 5/28).
